and without such preparation there is sure to be failure.”

Confucius

Autumn is the time to prepare for a beautiful springtime lawn.  Quite often, by March or April it is too late.  In order to set ourselves up for springtime success, we need to commit to doing a little pre-work in September and October.  Last year, we discussed the importance of autumn lawn care by focusing on weed control, seeding, and fertilizing.  As important as those are, before executing that trifecta of fall lawn care awesomeness, we’ll need to make sure that the lawn and topsoil are prepared properly.

175th Anniversary Brochure wins Best of Category

JEFFERSONVILLE, IN – The Printing Industry Association of the South presented their Brinly-Hardy Co. Wins PIAS Graphic Award40th Annual Graphic Awards in Destin, Florida last month, celebrating the best printed pieces from Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and West Virginia. The 175th Anniversary brochure of Brinly-Hardy Co., submitted by Merrick Printing Co., was awarded Best of Category for Catalogs of 4 or more colors.

The 18-page catalog incorporates both matte and gloss UV finishes, gold foil stamping, and an embossed 175th Anniversary logo on the cover. The piece also includes a gate-folded “timeline” insert printed on 100% post-consumer waste paper that follows the company’s history alongside snapshots of nostalgic US milestones. The contrast between the modern look of the gloss papers used for the majority of the catalog and the vintage feel of the felt paper used for the timeline insert reinforces this nostalgic theme.

Tracing its roots back to 1839, the Brinly-Hardy Company has cultivated a rich history of developing lawn and garden products that are both highly innovative and extremely durable. The business is still family-owned, led by 5th generation CEO Jane Hardy. They pride themselves on being a leading supplier of high-quality American-made lawn and garden products for both consumer and commercial users.

[VIDEO] How to Assemble the Brinly STS-427LXH Tow-behind Lawn Sweeper

Share Button

In our ever-continuing effort to bring you the best product support in the industry, we’ve posted another assembly video to our YouTube Channel. The newly redesigned STS-427LXH 42″ tow-behind lawn sweeper is our latest target. The STS-427LXH’s most distinguishing feature is the side-mounted Twist-Lock Height Adjustment. Differing from the previous iteration’s center-mounted height adjustment, the “427″ makes accessing the height adjustment lever easier by moving it out and away from the tow bar. The all-new Twist-Lock knob also prevents the lever from being jarred loose over bumpy terrain, securing tightly on one of the 10 settings which range from short grass to thick leaves. Effective for collecting both wet and dry grass clippings, the Brinly 42″ tow-behind lawn sweeper can be used virtually all year long.  >>More Information
